Since 2009 Michael Jackson’s son “Blanket,” has managed to remain out of the public eye since his father passed away.
However, the young man has evidently reinvented himself after a name-change and invested in a luxury property in California,
Take a look at snaps which have surfaced leaving people shocked and read the full story here.
Prince Michael Jackson became known as blanket following a certain incident.
On November 2nd, 2002, his father was spotted dangling Blanket over the edge of the balcony of his room at the Hotel Adlon in Berlin to the crowds of paparazzi below.
This particular act of his turned out to be one of the most scandalous incidents of time.
At a later stage he apologised, saying it a “terrible mistake.”
After this incident Jackson increased his efforts to protect his child…
None of the children were hardly ever seen out in public.
However in 2009, following Jackson’s death his children were suddenly thrown back into the spotlight.
All three children made their first appearance at their father’s funeral and memorial, which was televised.
However over the years since, things haven’t exactly been smooth for these three.
Although both Michael Joseph and Blanket remained out of the spotlight.
Paris on the other hand had a lengthy battle with mental health issues.
She also revealed that she had attempted suicide “many times.”
During an episode of her Facebook Watch series she explained how her self-harm was “a distraction from emotional pain” before admitting, “I tried to kill myself many times.”
Now Paris is in a much healthier place…
But now she uses her platform to raise awareness surrounding mental health issues.
“I still struggle to accept myself but that’s what I want to influence. I want to influence self-acceptance and courage and being comfortable in your own skin,” she said.
What about Blanket?
Well, while all the focus was on his older sister, it turns out that the youngest of the siblings, who was just 7-years-old at the time of his father’s death, was also having a difficult time.
Following the death of his father blanket was “very lost and extremely upset”
“The kids live like Michael is constantly looking down upon them,” a family friend told the magazine. “[But Blanket] has had the most problems adjusting after Michael died.”
After starting at the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California, the youngster changed his infamous nickname.
“He always thought that the name Blanket sounded so stupid and resented his father for calling him that.”
The source went on to explain that he fell victim to bullies as a result of his unconventional name.
“Growing up, his schoolmates have always been slightly mean to him because of their jealousy over who he is, and going by Blanket made him a much easier target for ridicule.”
Ten years later the youngest son of Michael Jackson has carved a whole new life and identity for himself…
People had a lot o say after seeing new photos of the nineteen-year-old.
Everyone, meet Bigi.
Yep, Blanket now goes by the nickname Bigi, and has recently invested in a $2.7 million California mansion.
His new home is said to boast 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and a huge swimming pool, as well as celebrity neighbours like Kim Kardashian.
However, he’s not strayed far from home as his grandmother and guardian, Katherine, is said to live just down the road in another gated community in the area.
What Bigi does for a living?
In a 2012 interview, he did express interest in becoming a movie director.
“When I grow up I want to be a director because it’s fun, and I make little movies when I’m at my house with cousins and friends and different things.”
“He [dad] said it would be a good thing so follow whatever you want to do.”
